Sell the dream, sell your home

STYLING your prop­erty is one of the most im­por­tant things you can do to get a sale across the line.

It has the im­me­di­ate abil­ity to make a buyer feel at home. If your own decor leaves a lit­tle to be de­sired, there are fur­ni­ture hire com­pa­nies that spe­cialise in styling a prop­erty for sale.

They have in­te­rior de­sign­ers who will give you pro­fes­sional ad­vice on how to present your prop­erty at its best.

Once they know the lo­ca­tion and size of your prop­erty, they can sug­gest styles and pieces that would work best.

If you're on a strict bud­get, con­cen­trate on th­ese main ar­eas: ◗ Liv­ing and din­ing ar­eas

◗ Master bed­room

◗ Main bath­room

◗ One out­door area

Th­ese are the key pho­to­graphs that a real es­tate agent is go­ing to use.

Then do a good tidy up of the re­main­ing rooms so they’re clean and un­clut­tered. Styling is es­pe­cially im­por­tant if you’re sell­ing an in­vest­ment prop­erty be­cause sell­ing an empty home isn’t ef­fec­tive.

You want to make it look so com­fort­able that the buy­ers never want to leave.

If you’re us­ing a fur­ni­ture hire com­pany, their fee should in­clude de­liv­ery and col­lec­tion after the du­ra­tion of your real es­tate cam­paign.

Re­mem­ber – sell­ing your home has noth­ing to do with your per­sonal style. Sell­ing the dream should be the fo­cus.
